Millions of Canadians – particularly those with lower incomes – have been experiencing rapidly rising housing costs, driven in large part by an extreme housing supply shortfall. The impacts of Canada’s housing shortfall disproportionately impact Indigenous peoples, newcomers, women-led households, youth, and seniors.
This year, on the heels of National Housing Day, Housing on the Hill will bring together CHRA members, housing professionals, and sector partners to advocate for a “Team Canada” approach to solving the housing crisis. Read on to learn more.
What is Housing on the Hill Day?
Housing on the Hill Day is an annual event organized by CHRA that facilitates meetings between housing professionals and Members of Parliament to discuss issues of importance to the social and non-profit housing sector. This year’s event is taking place on Tuesday, November 28.
Leading up to the event, attendees will be placed into advocacy teams based on similarities in the regions and/or communities they serve, the type of housing/services they provide, their areas of advocacy interest, etc. Participants will be invited to attend a free meet and greet event on the evening of Monday, November 27 to meet their advocacy teams.
